Britney is the Most Controversial

Britney scored number one for Worst Celeb Dog Owner, she's leading the race for Train Wreck of the Year, and now Britney has landed another title. CNN's Showbiz Tonight has crowned Brit Most Controversial Celebrity of 2006. Interested in how Britney took the crown over Mel, Michael Richards, Tom and Paris? Here's more:

"Showbiz Tonight" set four specific criteria that a celebrity had to meet before deciding who was the most controversial of the year:

Does the mention of their very name spark a visceral reaction?
Which celebrity provoked the most continuous shock and outrage from their antics over the course of the entire year?
Which celebrity generated the most continued interest through the year?
And, finally, did their actions leave any lasting impact?

Britney has had a big year full of lots of controversy, but which headline surprised you the most? Wonder why Brit looks so pissed off in these pics. We're just glad she decided to cover herself up a bit with some clothes.

Mar- Are you talking about Wade Robson??? Well it was rumored that she had an affair with him when she was with Justin. I don't know who the guy in the picture is, but he looks familiar, maybe one of her dancers.

Isnt that the guy that cheated on with Justin? The choreographer that was a guest judge on So You think You can Dance? I can not remember his name, but I am certain that is who she had an affair with behind Justin's back. He has a jewish name, but I can not remember, Brian something?

I agree with her being the most controversial person. I'm tired of seeing her tho. That tat on her foot is so gross!
Maybe she should take the acting job from lilo for the part of the stripper! She sure does have the look and we all know she can dance. I have a feeling she will end up in some smokey Vegas club in a cage dancing and strung out on drugs after Kfed gets custody of those kids. We all know it is just a matter of time.....

I think she looks quite nice here, except for the hair of course. And I'm still wanting for her comeback. I'll stand behind her. ^^ The Christmas song she has out now is really nice! :) ______________________________________ \Don't chase the beat of your heart/

The only reason I find her behavior offensive is that she has an infant and toddlers at home. She must see them for just minutes a day. Thats sad.

TeddySugar is right - Britney Spears is a "product", producers were not selling her voice but an image instead. Its kind hard thinking in a comeback, because she is not a teenager anymore, she is a yes she'll probably do a couple songs but is not going to be the same, her "career" as we all know it its pretty much over.

First, if I was a fan of someone's music I would never not buy it because of their personal life. I never was a fan, I'm just saying. Her hair looks like axel Rose's in the 80's. She's wearing a coat so people cannot see her outfit until she get's in the club. In my opinion her career was always going to be short lived because she got famous for being sweet, sexy and innocent at the same time. When you're only talent is dressing up like a school girl in ponytails singing about being not so innocent you're not going to get very far. My ex-boyfriend thought she was hot until she turned into the snake tramp and then he said she looked like a crack whore. She can't sing or act. Maybe she could be an author of children's books!LOL. Where are the children? She parties all night and changes her extension everyday, which must take hours. Does she pay attention to them while she's getting ready to go out? Angelina, Brad there are two children in need of a good home. Ready to adopt again?

The oufit probably cost a fortune but with those cheap extenstion and the gum she is probably popping she looks like she got those clothes from a yard sale. I was SOOOOO looking forward to her comeback but she ruined it.

I learned to accept that Britney will NEVER be a classy lady!NEVER *sighs*!She's no Jessica Alba or Kate Hudson material,hell no.So yeah she does look better even if she has the crappiest hair i have ever seen on a celebrity,even Tara Reid has nicer hair....

I def didnt see this happening. I was so happy she was getting a divorce I mean breaking up sucks but he just seemed yuck but since all this happened certinally is worrisome like summer roberts said , I also thought he was the reason for alot of things, you know how when in a bad relationship one reacts, now it just is sad. she seems to be spending more time concerned about herself. The fact is yes she is young BUT she is also a mother. I am not saying DONT have fun but they need to be her main focus now, and it just doesnt seem like it.

You can take the girl out of the trailer park, but you can't take the trailer park out of the girl. She fooled us for a long time.... her true colors are brighter than ever. Like Kyla said, we blamed K Fed, but she had this look long before him. Cut off shorts, skanky dresses, barely there concert outfits. Need I say more?

all dressed up & still looks trashy!!!!!!!!!!!!! why ?

I think it's that when she was married to K-Fed, people blamed him for her being messed up. After she got divorced, people had so much hope for her, but now she's proven she's capable of screwing up her life all her own. Now she has even less supporters than she did when she was with K-Fed.

Her hair look atrocious, but other than that I'd say she cleans up well... Dear Britney, get hot again!
